GroundWork stellt mit LogHub Beta eine Kombination aus Unified Monitoring & Logdatei-Analyse vor

GoundWork LogHub Beta 1 integriert Open Source Elasticsearch ELK Stack und schließt damit Monitoring-Lücke

SAN FRANCISCO - 02. April, 2014 - GroundWork, Inc. (www.gwos.de), führender Anbieter von Unified-Monitoring-Lösungen für IT Operations Management und Cloud Monitoring, hat heute das erste Beta-Programm des neuen GroundWork LogHub angekündigt, das eine oder mehrere Logdatei-Analyse-Lösungen in GroundWork Monitor Enterprise integriert. Die Verknüpfung von Unified Monitoring und Logdatei-Analyse ermöglicht eine schnellere Fehlerbehebung, eine verbesserte Ursachenanalyse und effektivere IT-Ereigniskorrelation und forensische Datenanalyse. Damit wird eine oft noch bestehende Monitoring-Lücke geschlossen und ein umfassender Überblick über die Infrastruktur und Anwendungen gewährleistet.

GroundWork LogHub Beta 1 ist an die Open-Source-Lösung Elasticsearch ELK Stack (Elasticsearch, Kibana und logstash) gekoppelt. Um eine nahtlose Visualisierung neben anderen Monitoring-Daten bieten zu können, werden Datensuche, -Anzeige und -Filterfunktionen nativ innerhalb des GroundWork Monitor Portals UI angezeigt.

Zukünftige Versionen des GroundWork LogHub werden voraussichtlich die Integration mit anderen beliebten Logdatei-Analyse-Tools, wie AppFirst, Sumo Logic und Splunk miteinschließen.

Anfang des Jahres befragte GroundWork fast 400 seiner User, wie wichtig ihnen die Verknüpfung der Fähigkeit zur Logdatei-Analyse mit der Unified-Monitoring-Lösung des Unternehmens ist.

Die wichtigsten Ergebnisse der Studie:

  • 37 Prozent der Nutzer von Unified Monitoring überprüfen ihre IT-Logs mit Hilfe der manuellen Textsuche; 33 Prozent benutzen bereits Logdatei-Analyse-Software dafür
  • 96 Prozent finden es wichtig, Log-Field-Daten mit anderen Monitoring-Ereignisdaten in eine einzige Suchfunktion und/oder Dashboard zusammenführen zu können
  • 42 Prozent der Nutzer gaben an, dass sie nicht genug Zeit haben um ihre IT-Logdateien zu analysieren; 18 Prozent sagten, die Kosten seien zu hoch

Diese Ergebnisse bestätigen die Ergebnisse des neuesten Berichts von Gartner "Modernisieren Sie Ihre Monitoring-Strategie indem Sie Unified Monitoring und Logdatei-Analyse-Tools verbinden" zum Thema wie man heutige komplexe und dynamische IT-Umgebungen besser verwaltet.

Laut Gartner sind "IT-Umgebungen heutzutage aufgrund fortschrittlicherer Infrastruktur und Investitionen in die Virtualisierung zunehmend konvergent und abstrakt. Das hat zur Folge, dass IT-Teams einen breiteren, tieferen und dynamischeren Blick auf den Zustand der Infrastruktur brauchen als je zuvor. Die I&O-Teams in Unternehmen sollten Unified-Monitoring und Logdatei-Analyse-Technologien verbinden, um einfachere, schnellere und kosteneffizientere Ansätze zu finden, die Verfügbarkeit der heutzutage sehr komplexen und dynamischen Umgebungen zu verwalten[1]."

Durch die Integration von GroundWork Monitor Enterprise mit Logdatei-Analyse-Tools bietet GroundWork LogHub:

  • bidirektionalen Datenfluss zwischen GroundWork Monitor und den Logdatei-Analyse-Tools
  • eine Anzeige korrelierter Logfile-basierter Daten in der GroundWork Event-Konsole für die Alarmierung, Anzeige und Reaktion
  • die Möglichkeit, Non-Logfile-Daten, wie Performance- oder Verfügbarkeits-Metriken zu Logdatei-Analyse-Tools zu schieben, um die Suchergebnisse zu verbessern
  • die Möglichkeit, Statusveränderungen, Ausfallzeit-Protokolle und andere Ereignisdaten, die GroundWork generiert, an das Logdatei-Analyse-Tool zu senden, um die Genauigkeit, Präzision und Abdeckung der Logdatei-Analyse sowohl für Ereigniskorrelation als auch für forensische Datenanalysen zu verbessern
  • verbesserte Skalierbarkeit und optimiertes Monitoring der Big-Data-Systeme durch die Verwendung eines verteilten Logdatei-Analyse-Tools zum Sammeln und zur Korrelation der Logdateien und so eine deutlich verbesserte Korrelations-Logik zwischen Logdateien und anderen Monitoring-Ereignissen

Abbildung 1: GroundWork LogHub-Event-Konsole
Bidirektionale Integration erlaubt die Darstellung gefilterter Logfile-Vorgänge (in diesem Fall von Logstash) in der GroundWork Event-Konsole neben anderen Typen von Monitoring-Ereignissen. Das Ergebnis ist einfaches Management, unmittelbare Benachrichtigung und Eskalierung.

Abbildung 2: GroundWork LogHub-Filter
Nicht alle Operating Systems oder Applikationen generieren Logs in einem Standardtextformat. In diesem Beispiel wurden Windows Logdaten automatisch durch GroundWork Monitor erfasst, um anschließend in das Elsaticsearch ELK-Portfolio zum einfacheren textbasierten Filtern und Sortieren weitergeleitet zu werden. Das Kibana User Interface ist nahtlos in das größere GroundWork Monitor-Portal eingebunden.

Abbildung 3: GroundWork LogHub-Tortendiagramme
Mit Groundwork erstellte Monitoring- und Logfile-Daten können in Tortendiagrammen und Histogrammen zur einfachen Visualisierung und Kreuzkorrelation dargestellt werden.
